Dreamcatcher (2003)

Even an all-star cast (pretty nearly) and one of the best horror writers ever are involved here (King) it somehow isn't very good. The story is about four friends who since childhood have been linked by a secret. They all get together and go hunting but things take a turn for the strange when a man turns up who was lost in the woods during a blizzard. Soon they learn what he's been infected with and that it's extraterrestrial related. I don't want to give more away but even with an semi-exciting idea just some things couldn't be and weren't properly filmed. It's also just too long and doesn't pay off very well yet it could have been worse I suppose!
